For Immediate Release: September 12, 2018
NARAL Pro-Choice America today announced its endorsement of Andy Levin in Michigan’s 9th Congressional District.
“In Congress, Andy Levin will fight against the Trump administration’s harmful gag order, attacks on access to health care, and ensure women’s autonomy and reproductive rights” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “We are proud to support Andy Levin and pro-choice champions up and down the ballot in Michigan this November.”
“While the Trump Administration tries to turn the clock back 50 years on women’s autonomy and reproductive rights, I will fight for the rights of women to make their own choices concerning their bodies and reproductive health,” Levin said. “The decision about whether to have an abortion is a complex and difficult one best made by a woman in consultation with her doctor. I can’t wait to get to Congress and fight Trump’s anti-woman agenda.”
Andy Levin has dedicated his life to public service in Michigan. He is the former director of No Worker Left Behind, the largest state job-retraining program in the country. He also founded his own clean energy business, which created jobs for the Michigan economy while improving public health, air, and water quality. Levin is a two-time cancer survivor, and longtime advocate for affordable healthcare.
